or the links are most crowded at the pitch line.

Taking now the joint as designed,
Strength of pierced plate = (8-5 -1-28) 1*28x6=55 tons.

The Tie Bar or Stringer Plate, Fig. 365, is art important
deduction from the last example.   By compelling the joint to break

The strips must not be bent abruptly, however, and the butt straps
should always be examined separately, and their thickness in-
creased until the links are narrowed sufficiently foi all to pass;
thus |f is required in the example.```
